I heard a Republican this morning on one of the Sunday political shows try to pass off the use of derogatory epithets by tea bagger protesters and rare "bad apples." They aren't. All you have to do is watch a couple of videos of these events, or flip through some slide shows of their signs to see that. What is surprising is that there haven't been more uses of the "n-word" or the "f-word" (in this case the anti-gay epithet) at these rallies. They've apparently run out of other euphemisms.
